A woman tried to steal a car from a school parking lot with a child still inside, according to police.

20-year-old Jennifer Anaiz Gomez is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.

The incident happened Wednesday morning at La Jolla Country Day School. According to police, a grandmother was dropping off another child. Police said Gomez approached the car, pulled the woman out and tried drive off, with a toddler still in the backseat.

Police said she couldn’t get the car into gear. A witness intervened, and a school security guard stopped the suspect from escaping.

Gomez will be charged with attempted carjacking. She is being held on $75,000 bail.
